with the united states to overturn gadhafi and police libya these last years but opened relationships with al qaeda and the darkest elements of the jihadists. there's suggestion ambassador stevens was murdered in revenge for the death of a libyan hero to the al qaeda forces al-libbi killed by a drone strike june 4th. >> john, what you're saying is round up the usual suspect, you're saying they have not really caught the perpetrators who killed ambassador stevens? >> the perpetrators are al qaeda and the jihadists of the uma. it's a vast organization. >> thank you for that. let me go to paul wulff wits, former deputy secretary of defense. thank you for coming back on the program. what's your take on this? president obama said no act of terror will go unpunished. he said we're going to bring them all to justice. what happens now? how do we bring them all to justice? >> clearly, we're talking about libya, it will happen with the cooperation of the libyans. one of the important things to put in context here, it's almost lost in everything i've heard is back in july the libyans had a pretty fair e
for the united states coming on and misleading the public. basically we have sent a letter to ambassador rice to explain herself. >> you know, there's a story out today, i didn't know if you saw it, senator, but the story essentially was that the united states government within 24 hours knew it was a pre-planned terrorist attack. your thought on that. because that indicts rice and whomever else was in this cover-up even more. >> that's right. ambassador rice came on the sunday morning programs and said that, in fact, it was a spontaneous reaction of course to the video. and in no way was an expression of hostility toward america. and you have to say killing four american heroes, quite honestly, attacking our consulate, if that's not hostility toward america, i don't know what it is. so, no, i think it's pretty apparent that the administration must have known, had information, and ambassador rice was sent out on the sunday programs to mislead the american public. i find that outrageous, and i think she needs to explain herself and explain herself fast. we should also call for an investigation.
of the united states. i would also like to see mitt romney reach out to these people these 47% that he's been talking about. whom he disparaged in these remarks and make it plain that these policies are in their benefit. that by creating more incentives. by moving the country away from it's dependdency -- >> wait, we are going to come back. give everybody an opportunity. reach out for everybody. what is your take? >> you call this a dirty trick. using somebody else's own words is a dirty trick. >> they have had it since last may. that is the thing. and now the other side by the way is going to use another dirty trick because they have this type of obama saying i'm a redistributionist. >> those are his own words. he said it. don't deknny it. if robert costa is right. that means he hasn't had a good week since may. >> he may be in trouble but polls have romney neck in neck, a deed even race with obama. what is your take? >> my take is on the video, this was a chance to refocus the campaign on the right issue whose got the program that is going to build the economy and create jobs and growth not
of the president of the united states. he deflects it and he attacks romney admitting this is a botched statement, holding the egypt government responsible for something like this is absolutely something they need to do if they want to have continued cooperation from the united states. >> and i want to ask peter brooks, old friend, so hillary says today in her comment that we reject these acts, quote, unquote, we reject these actions, but the president says later we will bring to justice. how he's going do that, i don't know. we will bring them to justice, peter brooks. what the hell does that mean? would you please tell me because to me, he is more interested in promoting these muslim states running through the art than he is promoting american influence and leadership in that region. that's what's got me really bugged, peter. how is he going to bring them to justice? >> i certainly can't channel president obama. i'm not the right person to do that. what i hope he means here is that the government of libya does not bring these guys to justice that we're going to take action including military ac
with us or against us. any country that harbors terrorists is against us, that the united states can make preemptive strikes against these enemy countries. i thought those were extremely important doctrines that president bush laid down. is it your opinion, your view that those doctrines are still being honored today in our national security policy, especially toward terrorists? >> they're in place. president obama has not changed the foreign policy that president bush did change and put in place, which means we're going to be preempted. we want to prevent the next attack. i don't think there's as much resolve, quite frankly, with president obama and i don't think he's provided the leadership and i don't think he's introduced the fear to those people who want to do bad things to us. i think they feel a little bit empowered. thankfully our intelligence k e committee is on its toes and will do everything they can to help. i think we're very lucky. i wish president obama was a stronger leader around the world and wasn't as passive and steps back. it can only come from the president of the u
lives are at stake and you know this, you don't go out and attack the president of the united states and say that he's somehow or another sympathizes with terrorists. that's how he lost it. if you handed that statement to ronald reagan, if you handed that statement to george bush or go, h.w. bush, i think they would have looked at you and said you know you have a new job in this campaign. why don't you answer the phones because it was ill-advised. it was a mistake. today they announced they are is going to have a whole bunch of specifics. they have ed gillespie on the phone and i think he's terrific. >> i think he lost the support of the liberal press and the liberal media which he never had anyway. >> dick, you would not have advised him to make that statement at that time in the middle the violence. >> how could you comment on what everybody in america was talking about. a president whose foreign policy is -- it was embarrassing. >> hang on. one at a time. >> the fact that it offended the liberal press probably -- >> it offended americans. >> it offended americans. president of the
leaders who are signaling they're coming to the united states to the u.n. general assembly and they express the desire through their ambassadors to the state department they want to meet with the president. and those options are then put before the national security adviser, and he decides whether or not to make any recommendation to the president on who to meet. well, it's quite clear that either he didn't make any -- either he made recommendations that there's no reason to meet with anybody, or he did make recommendations and the president said, in a, i don i d want to meet them, i'll give a speech and then get to ohio. >> just to follow up on this, i'm thinking of the netanyahu story with israel and iran. one of the key issues, we had professor from harvard law school is whether the united states will truly decisively back up netanyahu and israel militarily. now, with all respect to hillary clinton who is doing a fine job on this stuffy imagine, it's only the president who can make a statement like that.imagine, y the president who can make a statement like that. only th
of the united states. >> all right. so far as i can tell that's the only time he said the word "jobs." i don't hear growth at all. maybe i missed something. i don't think so. we did hear government spending, i'm sorry, now called citizenship and tax the rich. i can tell you what's coming. like europe, a value added tax. the most insidious tax hike of all slamming the middle class. we'll get into it later on. markets flat but with the jobs numbers, investors are waiting on the fed meeting next week. gold the big winner up $32. that's a signal fed stimulus is on the way. is that one reason why russian president vladimir putin is reportedly stockpiling gold? later in the show, the convention's post-mortem. who made the better sale to independents. was it republicans in tampa or the democrats in charlotte. first up tonight let me dig into today's anemic jobs report. once again, no joy for the american workforce. let's go to the first one. all right. nonfarm payrolls up 96,000. this was a big disappointment. wall street consensus expected. 125,000 to 150,000. it didn't happen. the last two months
deficits in the history of the united states. four deficits in excess of a trillion dollars each so that more than a third of all the debt ever run up in the 236-year history of the united states, more than a third of it was under barack obama's presidency in the last three and a half years. who's going to pay off the debt? our children and a grandchildren. that's who is going to pay it off. that's where romney and paul ryan are calling for a growth agenda where we can start creating jobs in this country and not have economic growth of 1.7%, under 2% and a federal reserve board that believes we'll be in this shape for two years. that's why they say they will keep interest rates for another two years. >> you heard him talk about the debt created under president obama when the country was going off a fiscal cliff and the banks were seizing up. he never referenced the 5 trillion in debt generated under george bush while he was governor. he never referenced the two wars we didn't pay for. george bush was the first president in the history of the union to go to war and give people a tax
the west and the united states and it's interests. >> all this flag burning, american flag burning, which burns me up, probably burns you up just as much if not more. should been united states retaliate in some way for this flag burning? >> well t short answer is, it's more important than just defending the flag, it's defending our interests and our national requirements in that region. we have got to get engaged. we have got to get reengaged because if we don't, we're going to see more and more of this. >> many thanks, general mark kimet stayed up late for us in germany. i'm larry kudlow, we will see you tomorrow night.

. it is ludicrous. it's a lie and the president of the united states needs to come before the american people and explain to them what did he know? when did he know it? and why has he and senior officials been lying. >> is jack jacobs here. welcome. i want to bring you in. we have been talking about this whole situation. it looks, to me, like this was a major security breakdown. the intelligence people told them that this was with a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist attack within 24 hours of the awful killing of our ambassador and the other people with them. and the white house denied and denied it and are still denying it and i say susan rice should be fired. she should resign and i'm asking jack, up the chain of command, what is hillary clinton's role and what is president obama's role? >> well, let me tell you, everybody is responsible for everything that happens in his unit or fails to happen. the state department has a great deal to answer for. there's no doubt in my military mind this was a pre-planned attack. if you look at it as a small unit operation, they had mortars that they shot, co
. that's what they don't get. >> it seems like europe, the united states and china are all on the cusp of recession. it seems like it. >> they are doing terribly. you see it with manufacturing numbers in particular have been terrible. >> in all three areas. >> you started to see the credit default swaps. that level is higher than it was. they perceive more risk with corporate bonds. >> some positives. auto sales are good. housing, certainly coming off the bottom a little bit. consumer income and spending, not so much. >> you see things where interest rates have a huge impact. they are extremely low. we have seen positive bumps there. in terms of hiring, we now have almost one in seven americans on food stamps. that's not where you should be in the third year of recovery. >> you are also a sports expert with your great show on the yes network. the football season kicks off tonight. my giants host the dallas cowboys. which team is worth the most? >> cowboys, easy. $2.1 billion, worth more than any toeam in the u.s. jones is a marketing genius. the cowboys get $80 million in stadium spons
of the united states, but is that enough 46 days before the election? also tonight, so the president says he has come to learn that you can't change washington from the inside. reminder that he ran in 2008 as an outsider, pitching change against senator john mccain. learn learned, what else has the president learned in his three years in office? the markets closed flat for the day mostly, and flat for the week. tonight we're getting hard numbers on what falling off the fiscal cliff could mean and what it could cost the markets, 20%, at the very least. so how is congress going about it? earlier today the house went into recess until after the election and the senate wraps up tonight and we'll look at washington at work or not, but first up, after months of resisting and saying he's done what's required, mitt romney put out a friday surprise and released his 2011 tax return and nbc's john harwood joins us. >> reporter: good evening, joe. mitt romney promised when he released preliminary estimates that he would release these returns before the election and now he's done it. he actually reported les
a bipartisan consensus in the united states for many years that the u.s. and israel are the closest of allies, that we have to tackle problems in the middle east together. it's why you see legislation passing the united states senate 99-0 when it comes to confronting iran's nuclear ambitions and supporting -- supporting our closest ally israel, so it's a very strange position for him. it's really out of -- really out of sync with a broad bipartisan consensus in this country. >> jeb, let me go to you. i want to go back to libya and benghazi and that whole story. front page "new york times." we lost most of our intelligence assets because of this snafu, because of this mistake. the cia lost a lot of intelligence assets. we may be wiped out. now, again, president obama in the "60 minutes" last night could not get himself to say that this was premeditated, that this was a terrorist plot. he's still hanging on to the video story which, as you know, is a falsehood. i call it a lie. i believe ambassador, u.n. ambassador susan rice, should have been made to resign, or she should have taken the honora
service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up. everyday delta flies a quarter of million people while investing billions improving everything from booking to baggage claim. we're raising the bar on flying and tomorrow we will up it yet again. >>> just minutes ago an activist judge struck down wisconsin's collective bargaining law saying it's unconstitutional on the state and federal level. this was governor scott walker's prime achievement for which he was re-elected on a recall vote. so here to break it down for us, cnbc contributor robert costa of "the national review." is this some dumb ass left-wing judge who is try to stop the recall election where walker had an even bigger plurality than he did the firs
where he talked about how he would handle foreign policy. he said he would handle the way the united states handles foreign aid. >> a temporary aid package can give the economy a boost and employ people for a time but it can't sustain a economy for a long-term. it can't pull the cart. at some point the money runs out. both candidates for president appearing before former clinton. making a joke there. solary, a big day of foreign policy in new york today. >> i saw a bit of this. mit romney's idea that he want to leverage u.s. aid through private corporations to underdeveloped countries. but we already have the xm bank. a lot of people see that as more corporate welfare. was mitt romney giving us more corporate welfare? >> what he wants to have is a more sophisticated partnership. he doesn't want to be writing checks to the foreign governments. he wants a more sophisticated interplay. that was where he was going with this. but he cited the initiative as the model that he would like to pursue. he said what bill clinton has done is a model for how far rin policy can go. many thanks. >> l
are rebelled against it, they blame the united states for japan, i guess japan's trying to take a couple of islands someplace. but you're saying, this avm missile, we help them, we're being blamed for that, is that what you're saying? >> basically when the chinese see the u.s. and japan thickening up our military cooperation, in this case, in an anti-ballistic missile system, they see it as some kind of act against the chinese. it's not about the chinese, it's about the north korea missile and nuclear program which has the japanese very worried. we want to work with the japanese, we don't want the japanese to go off on their own and develop their own systems, so we're working with them. but the chinese think it's about them. i really have to emphasize what's going on in china today is not about the u.s., it's about japan. >> secretary of defense panetta is trying to negotiate a new military treaty with china. last time i covered this story, secretary of defense bob gates was in china and they were flying these supersonic jets, these new fighter jets over his head, which was really a stor
good and the dollar is rallying and the united states represented the best place to invest. the stock market could do higher. >> i figure after the first 16 or 18 minutes of stock market rally with qe-3, i think the stock market this whole bloody thing, they're tired of it, then they start worrying about tax hikes, as our own ayman javers said, probably an accurate point, we may not, they may not in washington get to tax hikes until the middle of january, when a potential new president is sworn in, and then i could just tell you from the reagan days, you don't just snap your fingers and do a deal. these things have -- even with romney, it will take months to go through the process. >> i think -- despite the fact i'm completely supporting the new conservative administration, i do think it might get a little trickier if republicans come in. i think they may wait and i think it could be -- i won't say a disaster by any means, i think it could spook the market quite easily. >> let's prosecuting in jeff, who knows a thing or two about all this, the chief market strategist. good evening, je
